Sunflower seeds, and he may have peed in my yard
Not that any of it went smoothly. Of course the cabinet guy was a nightmare (thank goodness they look awesome!), and the tile is a little jagged/eschew in some places (but for real, I'm just so DONE with this whole thing that I just can't bring myself to care that much). And I have about 200 little sunflower seed shells spit all around my yard that I'm going to have to pick up. (who DOES that at someone else's house?!)
I can tell you, it's going to be a long time before I do anything like this again. And when I do, we're springing for the expensive guys in the hope that they actually do the work a tad speedier. (Have I mentioned the tile project for a mere 400 sq ft of tile has been going on for 2 weeks now and it looks like it won't be done until the end of this next week? I get that the guy has a weird schedule, but it's making living in our house difficult) We still have carpet to do, but we can't afford it now, and it's almost a blessing because I just cannot deal with this for much longer. I'd love to have a day where I come home without the worry about which major appliance I won't be able to use for the next 3 days. As it is right now my fridge is in the living room and the washer and dryer are unplugged in the garage. That stench? Oh, it's me and my unwashed clothes.
I just want to be able to live in my own home again.
Now how would you deal with this?
